Careless Talk

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We’ve just come back from holiday
What a lovely place to be
We marked our anniversary
By Egypt’s green Red Sea

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I talked a lot to the locals
‘Cause that’s the way I am
Of politics and bifocals
Of London and Siam

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 No one got over excited
No matter what I said
Till I mentioned Man United
Then a young man lost his head

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 I said that Arsenal were better
I couldn’t have said much worse
I may send a repentant letter
To avoid The Mummy’s Curse

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 He knew their names, and all the scores
His favourite player is Scholes
When the missus got me back indoors
She pulled me o’er the coals

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 But as she has done throughout the years
She forgave me being a pain
And we celebrated our forty-five years
Together once again
